Area of Good Memory in Brain

New findings abut our memory! Scientists believe they have located a new brain area essential for good memory - the "Irrelevance Filter". People who are good at remembering things, even with distractions, have more activity in the basal ganglia on brain scans, the Swedish team found.

The work published in Nature Neuroscience could help explain why some people are better at remembering things than others. Clinically, it could also aid the understanding of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Link
